Unsolicited Reviews

A review:
"I've been reading your cartoons.
I find them more bitter and sad than funny."

And my reply:
Roses are red and violets are blue,
You find my toons bitter and sad and not funny
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo!

Channeling Shirley Temple

a repost:

"I was blacklisted? Oh, my!"

"If something may upset you,
Don't ever let it get you down,
Don't wear a frown.
Just keep your chin up,
And give it a try,
And you'll find silver-lined clouds in the sky.
You gotta S-M-I-L-E
To be H-A double P-Y."
- words by Mack Gordon, music by Harry Revel

Channeling a Literary Agent

"Let me open today's batch of E-mail queries!"

"This query has attachments!! What a freaking jerk!
This idiotic query has two misspelled words!
This nitwit sent a query written in chartreuse italic font!
This fool wrote 'alot' instead of 'a lot!'
This query includes 12 chapters of her memoir,
and I don't even rep memoirs!
Stupid, stupid, stupid!
How many parts of stupid can I fit into one day?"

"Oh, here's a snail mail query!
Yikes, I opened it and fluorescent technicolor glitter
fell out all over my desk and on to my fresh bagel!
And it smells like perfume!"

"Some damn ignoramus posted a query in 3-D on YouTube!
May I ask where the glasses are?"

"I have to Twitter about these idiots.
These queries have given me a migraine.
I need some laughs! Let me begin a contest.
I found an old Bobbsey Twins book I will give as a prize."

"After looking at these stupid queries all day,
I need... a hyperbaric chamber."

A Visit to the Dentist

"Quick! Turn on your Skype.
I just came from having my teeth cleaned at the dentist's office.
Look! I think I bled enough to feed Dracula for a year!
What's up with that?"

An Admired Characteristic

"I finally realized in life I need a stronger dose
of the trait all people in power love: the brown nose!
I will internalize and practice this admired characteristic.
It couldn't hurt. I can brown nose with the best of them.
Watch! A little bit wider, please!"

An Inevitable Morph

"But you see in dealing with me,
the literary agents didn't know
that they were dealing with a staunch character
and I tell you if there's anything worse
than dealing with a staunch woman... S-T-A-U-N-C-H.
There's nothing worse, I'm telling you.
They don't weaken, no matter what."

Channeling Zorba

"I had to channel Zorba.
He has my philosophy!

Zorba: Damn it boss, I like you too much not to say it.
You've got everthing except one thing: madness!
A man needs a little madness, or else...
Basil: Or else?
Zorba: he never dares cut the rope and be free."

Celebrate Your Crazy

"A forum keeps telling me I have my own special brand of crazy.
Another forum said I am nuts and they called me a wacko.
And I have been called a fruitcake.

What's wrong with crazy? Get crazy!
I say... celebrate your crazy!"

Channeling Larry David

"Look at me, I morphed into Larry David!
He thinks HE has OCD?
I am OCD Patient Zero!
And I feel pretty pretty pretty pretty good!"

Channeling Mona Lisa

"Wow, I don't think I look like Mona Lisa in this morph.
I look more like Morticia Addams.
Maybe Bebe Neuwirth needs an understudy.
Ya think? "
